Leonardo da Vinci at Queens Gallery – May 4th – October 7th

If you perhaps missed my post last spring and failed to get tickets to the Da Vinci exhibit at the National Gallery,  you have another opportunity to see his masterful work


This Spring, the Queen’s Gallery at Buckingham Palace will exhbit the largest ever of Leonardo da Vinci’s studies of the human body. 

“Leonardo has long been recognised as one of the great artists of the Renaissance, but he was also a pioneer in the understanding of human anatomy.  He intended to publish his ground-breaking work in a treatise on anatomy, and had he done so his discoveries would have transformed European knowledge of the subject.  But on Leonardo’s death in 1519 the drawings remained a mass of undigested material among his private papers and their significance was effectively lost to the world for almost 400 years.  Today they are among the Royal Collection’s greatest treasures.

Book online as this exhibit is expected to be a popular part of the e Queens Diamond Jubilee celebration events.
